2012 NFL Mock Draft: SB Nation Has Green Bay Packers Selecting Peter Konz

With all of the free agent signings last week and over the weekend, needs have changed for most of the NFL's teams. Unsurprisingly, as a result, lots of mock drafters are changing their mock drafts. SB Nation's latest 2012 NFL Mock Draft from Ryan Van Bibber of SBNation.com and Turf Show Times is up, and it has a change for the Green Bay Packers.

Ryan had the Pack selecting Jerel Worthy, a DT in college who has the skills to play as a 3-4 DE in the Packers' system, but has made a change in light of the news that the team will not be retaining Scott Wells. Surprise! It's Peter Konz.

Ted Thompson was unwilling to pay what Scott Wells wanted. Agree or disagree, the Packers lost perhaps their best offensive lineman. They cannot afford to whiff on a replacement. Konz is the best center in the draft, from a program that breeds blocking talent.

I certainly wouldn't argue with the selection of Konz, who most of us have seen a lot of in college. I have no doubt that he's going to be a high-quality starting NFL center.

Where's the Evan Dietrich-Smith fan club?
